moments when i remember –
tadasana, making tea

some moments carry

i fill these moments

i fill these moments
with sugar, enough sugar
to preserve them for

at least a decade, maybe
longer, long after we are dead

darling, there will always

darling, there will always
be moments when you will not
understand why i need as much
time with you as without

there is a constant
pull between wanting
and not wanting –
and until we stop falling
into each other’s arms
on top of the clean
laundry on an unmarked
sunday morning, there will be
nothing to worry about, you
will forever know i am coming

what you are supposed

what you are supposed
to do, she said, is
move on.
that is exactly
what these moments are
for – to remember
that you are
alive every so
often so that you can
go back to the
business
of living again

knowing that you are

knowing that you are
somewhere close and
just maybe
ridiculously
happy should be
an enduring
pursuit, heart
paying close
attention to
heart, mind choosing
to stay intoxicated

the moment before the

the moment before the
moment quickens the
pulse like no
other, steals an
increasing fraction
of every next
breath, so
that we are one-
eighth, one-sixth,
a quarter
breathless,
stretching and stirring
only atoms, admiring
the space between until
there is deliciously
no space between
